"MTV revolutionized the performance storytelling space when it launched 'MTV Unplugged' almost 30 years ago," Amani Duncan, MTV's senior vice president of music, said in a statement Thursday. 

"The 'Unplugged' series allows artists to reimagine their songs in an intimate and acoustic medium, giving their fans a new perspective on their favorite hits. We're thrilled to have multi-platinum singer/songwriter Shawn Mendes launch this new season."

"I'm so thrilled and honored to be able to help bring the 'Unplugged' series back," added Mendes. "It's a show that truly highlights artistry and brings unique performances to fans that they can't see anywhere else."

"MTV Unplugged" premiered in 1989 and ran regularly as a series through 1999, with fresh specials broadcast sporadically after that.

Among the artists to appear on the program were Nirvana, Jay-Z, Eric Clapton, Bob Dylan, Bruce Springsteen, Miley Cyrus, Tony Bennett, Mariah Carey, Katy Perry, Lil Wayne, Adele and Florence + The Machine.
